The Employee of the Month recognition is awarded for the amazing work that an employee performs above and beyond their normal work responsibilities, which aligns directly with any of our five cornerstones: People, Quality, Service, Growth and Finance. The Employee of the Month receives a $50 American Express gift card, $100 from the Medical Staff, an Employee of the Month pin, a framed certificate and parking onsite for the month. Employees of the month are also considered for the Employee of the Year recognition. Employees of the Year are selected by the Rewards & Recognition Committee and receive one week of paid time off and $1,000.
Nomination forms for Employee of the Month may also be picked-up in the Human Resources Office at either Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford or Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.
Employee of the Month: July 2015
Louise Foley, Staffing Coordinator
Louise handles staffing like an expert chess player. She ensures that staff levels on all inpatient units are appropriate, and she is always looking ahead and forecasting needs to meet each unit's demands. With her unwavering kindness, she is able to orchestrate staff schedules and encourage her peers to move around and change schedules to meet the needs of the hospital. With the increase in census over the winter months, Louise always found a way to cover the additional staffing needs while ensuring staff satisfaction and the safety of our patients at the same time.
Even during her busiest moments, Louise never gets flustered and always has a nice word for everyone all while maintaining an impeccable quality of work. Her data entry is always accurate, and she maintains precise logs on time and attendance.
"Louise plays a vital role in the day-to-day operations of both hospitals," said Kathy Charbonnier, RN, MSN, associate chief nursing officer for operations. "We couldn't do our job without her!"
